Jamie Redknapp to be dad again

Jamie Redknapp is to become a father for the third time.

The 47-year-old sports pundit - who has sons Charley, 16, and Beau, 12, from his marriage to singer Louise Redknapp - is expecting a baby with girlfriend Frida Andersson, with the tot due in November, and the couple couldn't be happier.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Jamie and Frida are absolutely delighted.

“They’ve been virtually inseparable in lockdown, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

“The couple started telling their nearest and dearest last week.

“Jamie’s been telling pals he’s really excited to be a dad again — less excited about the sleepless nights, and ­nappy-changing.

“But both he and Frida will be brilliant, hands-on parents.”

Although the couple - who have been together since August 2020 - haven't directly confirmed the news, the 37-year-old model has been thanking fans for their wellwishes on Instagram.

After Frida - who has four children from her marriage to Jonathan Lourie - shared a photo of her son on Instagram, fans used the comments section to congratulate her on her baby news and she responded with thank you emojis.

The model often posts about her kids on her social media page but always conceals their faces in the pictures and never refers to them by name in order to protect their privacy.

It was previously claimed Jamie and Frida's relationship was going well because they both understood the importance of juggling parenthood with their careers.

A source said shortly after it was revealed they were dating: "Jamie feels ready to move on from his marriage to Louise and is happy to be doing it with someone who has kids too and is financially secure.

"It's early days for Jamie and Frida, but they have grown close and are really enjoying spending time together when they can.

"He really gets on with Frida and she has been very understanding about him juggling fatherhood and his successful TV career.

"He likes that she's also a parent so fully appreciates the balance, she is also keen on her fitness and loves spending time at home."
